Inflexion Partnership Capital invests in Medivet
Inflexion today announces that funds managed by Inflexion have completed a Partnership Capital, minority investment, in Medivet Partnership LLP, the largest independent veterinary clinic operator in the UK vet market.
Medivet was founded in 1986 and now operates over 160 practices. Led by a team of veterinary surgeons with 300 years of collective experience, the business has enjoyed exceptional growth. Medivet has capitalised on industry deregulation that stimulated consolidation in its market, successfully expanding through the acquisition of practices across the UK. The business harnesses favourable market dynamics as the c. £2bn UK vet industry is buoyed by rising medical expenditure and insurance penetration.
Attracted to our Partnership Capital solution, Medivet sought a minority investor to help accelerate the business’s established acquisitive growth strategy.
David Whileman, Head of Partnership Capital, Inflexion, commented: “Partnership Capital continues to attract and invest in successful businesses of scale; this minority investment represents our third in as many months. Medivet is a large independent and highly respected business within its industry. We are delighted to invest alongside an outstanding management team with a proven strategy for growth. We look forward to working closely with the Medivet team.”
Arnold Levy, Chief Executive Officer, Medivet, commented: “We are proud of our business today, having overseen substantial growth throughout the UK. As vets, we understand our market and are passionate about providing very high levels of client service and patient care. Inflexion shares our vision of sustainable expansion; their tailored minority investment solution made them a natural fit. We will continue to lead Medivet and look forward to working with Inflexion to develop this business further.”
The Inflexion deal team comprised of Mark Williams, Andrew Neville and Chloe Holding; Mark has joined the board on completion.
